Towards a process for architectural modelling in agile software development (bibtex)
by Durdik, Zoya
Abstract:
Agile methods and architectural modelling have been considered to be mutually exclusive. On the one hand, agile methods try to reduce overheads by avoiding activities that do not directly contribute to the immediate needs of the current project. This often leads to bad cross-project reuse. On the other hand, architectural modelling is considered a pre requisite for the systematic cross-project reuse and for the resulting increase in software developer productivity. The theme of this paper is to address the relationship between agile methods and architectural modelling and to propose a novel process for agile architectural modelling, which drives requirements elicitation through the use of patterns and components. This process is in-line with agile principles and is illustrated on an example application. Additionally, the paper points out the challenges connected to the process validation and proposes an approach for the empirical validation addressing these challenges.
